British Freestyle Championships Information
For regular updates on the run up to the event, and during the event please check the official BKSA Facebook Page. If you have any questions please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The British Freestyle Championships objective is to deliver a high quality competition that is enjoyable for the riders and provides a platform for them to demonstrate their talent and develop their skills. The championships also provide a springboard to the GKA Kite World Tour and International competitions. Riders are encouraged to support each other during the events. To deliver the best possible experience it would be greatly appreciated if every rider offered a bit of assistance when they are not competing (eg judging other categories, flag holder, beach marshal, launching & landing, commentating etc). In this way we can deliver the best possible event for each other.
Briefing and Registration.
Briefing and registration times will be set out on the Friday, briefings and registrations are mandatory. If you are late or do not attend you will be disqualified. At a lot of events we are restricted with time due to wind and tides, so to ensure the maximum competition time, we need to run smoothly, and all competitors need to help with this.
Wind permitting at each event the main focus will be the Freestyle Championship.
There will be the following categories:
- Open Men
- Open Women
- Amateur Men
- Amateur Women
- Junior Girls
- Junior Boys
A minimum of three riders are required for each category. In the event of categories only having 1 or 2 riders, these will be merged with the appropriate of other gender.
In each category the first, second and third place will be recognised.
There will also be recognition of the highest scoring Over 40 and Under 18 within the Open Category. This is subject to a minimum of 3 riders in these age brackets.
The format for the events will be a Dingle Elimination to allow us time to get through all the heats. If conditions limit time this will switch to a Single Elimination to allow us to complete the event as fully as possible. If conditions further limit time we may run expression sessions to allow the opportunity for riders to compete despite severe time restrictions, the expression sessions will not expected to count towards overall titles.
First Round heats will consist of either 2, 3 or a maximum of 4 riders depending on the number of riders entering the category.
In addition to the main freestyle championship we will run a foil freestyle competition at each event should conditions and time allow. All entrants for the main freestyle event are eligible to enter the foil freestyle competition.
Format will be an expression session judged on the best trick during that session.
